As advocates we talk a lot about building relationships with our lawmakers. We know that by working to get to know your legislator that you can make sure that your voice is heard on issues important to you. So when and how do you start?
Now that even the President has been sworn into office for his next term, all your elected officials (both state and federal) are actively serving you. This is the perfect time for you to start communicating with them and making sure they get to know you as a constituent and a You’re the Cure advocate. And we want to help you be successfully and easily.
